Public Key Infrastructure - PKI Print E-mail

A Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) may be used to authenticate a users and a system. The system presents itself to a user with a certificate and the user presents their own certificate in return. 

PKI ensures the security of exchanges through encryption and hash coding. PKI may also be used to manage a digital signature system.

FlowMind provides a simple authentication system based on a login and password. 

However FlowMind can be combined with an authentication system such as PKI or certificates. 

FlowGate also supports the SSL protocol.
